Hi there! Happy Thursday to you! Today feels like it should be Friday. I feel like I’ve been a day off this entire week. I’m not quite sure why but at least we are one more day closer to the weekend. That is something to be happy about. I’m also looking forward to after work today! The farmer’s market near me opens this afternoon! I will be picking up Melissa on my way home from work and we will be going to the farmer’s market together. I’m really excited. Even though, with my stomach, I’m not able to eat as many fruits and vegetables. I’m still looking forward to hopefully picking up a few things that I can enjoy. I love supporting the local farms. I’m so happy they are doing the farmer’s market again. It’s great!
So yesterday I really was not feeling well all day because of my stomach. I kept debating whether I should leave work early or not and I just stuck it out. By the time I got home, all I wanted to do was lay on the sofa. I wasn’t sure what we were going to eat for dinner but I was thinking maybe a pizza would be good? I had dairy-free cheese and I would be very light with the sauce since tomatoes bother my stomach. So we took out our pizza stone to try for the first time. We both had no clue what we were doing.
We preheat the pizza stone in the oven like the directions said, and then we stupidly started rolling the dough onto the hot stone. Well that wasn’t a good idea because the dough completely stuck to the stone and we couldn’t do anything with it! It was a complete utter mess! I think we need to get something to assemble the pizza on and lift on the stone. Do any of you know how to do it? Please let me know! I hate wasting things and we had to throw out the pizza dough because it just couldn’t be salvaged at all. We were both pretty upset because it’s wasted money in the trash. At least we know what not to do now. I was looking forward to trying the pizza on the stone too.
We had a frozen Freschetta pizza in the freezer so that is what we decided to eat.
Mike made a Caesar salad to eat along with the pizza in one of our new Rachael Ray mixing bowls that Melissa and the bridesmaids got us.
I roasted some potato wedges and string beans to go along with the pizza.
I picked most of the cheese and sauce off my pizza to prevent it from hurting my stomach as best as I could. I still felt pretty crummy from it the rest of the night. That is why I was looking forward to baking our own pizza. Stupid pizza stone disaster! I’m hoping that we will get to use it sometime soon the proper way. I don’t know if there is something we need to use to lift the pizza onto the stone or what we need to do. If you know, please tell me! I beg of you.
I think I’m going to call the doctor today and see if we can do something more aggressive with the care of my Crohn’s Disease. I don’t know if I can last in this horrible pain until we get back from our honeymoon. Nothing is working and I keep feeling more miserable as days go on. I’m trying to stop being stubborn and take the medicine that he has wanted me to take all along. I will have to see what it says because trust me, it’s no fun being in pain all the time with your stomach. It’s really frustrating and this has been going on since my surgery in December. It’s now June already. That is a long time to feel terrible for. I’m not liking it at all. So that is pretty much where I stand with my health. It’s just trying to figure out what is going to work and to not be as aggressive with our wedding and honeymoon coming up. I don’t want to have to deal with bad side effects from medications.
So we will see what happens when I speak to him. Have a great Thursday!
